North Korea has rejected the United States demands that it dismantle its nuclear programs. The country says such a demand is a plot to start a war and overthrow the government. The comments came after a meeting between North Korea's leader Kim Jong the Second, and China's foreign minister earlier this week. China's foreign minister says the two countries have agreed to "push forward" a third round of six-nation talks on its nuclear programs. North Korea says it will allow inspections and dismantle its facilities ONLY if the U-S gives the country economic aid and written guarantees it won't invade. The White House said the country must first dismantle all its nuclear facilities, because it has broken international agreements not to develop nuclear weapons in return for oil and economic aid.
